Head Pull

Two competitors position themselves facing each other and supported only on their hands and toes. A leather loop is placed around their heads above or below their ears, but the higher the loop, the more difficult the sport becomes.

When the signal is given, they begin to pull in a strong and steady fashion. An athlete will be successful when they have pulled their opponent across a target line, or in pulling the loop off the opponent’s head.
